The diameter of the parts varied from 27 mm to 30 mm and the length from 36 mm to 73 mm. One side was flat while the other was curved. The orientation required was standing with the curved side up. Elscint used its Model 630 with a bowl having diameter of approximately, 1100 mm.. The bowl was fabricated in stainless steel and coated with Elscinthane polyurethane coating in order to reduce the metal to metal contact between the tubes and the metallic bowl. A linear track of 850 mm length was provided with small adjustment for accommodating all the above sizes. A speed of between 35 parts (for the 73 mm length ones to 80 parts per minute (for the 38 mm length ones) was achieved. The bowl feeder was shipped to South Africa.
